Booklist Review
Travel writer Fraser enchanted readers with her tale of her postdivorce romance with a sophisticated French professor in An Italian Affair (2001). She continues the story here, beginning with the end of the affair after the professor finds someone he wants to settle down with. Fraser wants the same thing, but she still finds herself most drawn to free-spirited men looking for flings, not relationships. An assault in Samoa leaves her shaken and afraid to travel alone. Fraser turns her focus inward, trying to find peace through meditation and to temper her impulsiveness. Her forty-fifth birthday brings the end of a relationship and the beginning of something new when Fraser travels to the Mexican city of San Miguel de Allende and finds herself contemplating buying a house. The title is an apt description of both Fraser's travels which include jaunts to Italy, Provence, and Rwanda described in evocative, lush prose and her frame of mind over the course of the eight years that her winning coming-of-middle-age memoir spans.--Huntley, Kristine Copyright 2010 Booklist
